Short Hills Map


Recommended Posts

After reading the excellent article from the Ontario Geocaching Assoc., I thought that when I visit SW Ontario next week I would go looking for Deer Bait, and likely 1-2 other caches in that park.


I'd like to get my hands on a map that shows the Short hills trails. Preferably one that also has a UTM grid, but that is probably asking for too much. Worse comes to worse, if I can get a decent trail map I can always plot the trails onto the 1:50 topo sheet.


Anyone got any suggestions or, preferably, links?


I realize that I don't need a detailed map, necessarily. But, I like maps!

The Ministry of Natural Resourcesweb site has topo maps. Hard copy for sale from the MNR store or create a custom digital view from Land Information Ontario. I created a topo map of the Short Hills area using the application. It is Cartographically ugly, but workable.


Or better yet, Geographynetwork.ca has Ontario base data & it is downloadable in several formats. (and it looks alot better than LIO)

Thanks for the suggestion.


Topo maps aren't the problem. Any map or data isn't going to have the park trails mapped and identified -- or at least, wouldn't expect it to.


I need a map or a shapefile that shows the established trails for the park. If it doesn't have what else I need (topography and a grid) then I can put it onto an existing map.
